When it comes time to wash our white clothes, it’s typically the same routine. You add the detergent, the bleach, whatever else you need and the rest takes care of itself.

However, there are times when we seem to run out of bleach at the most inopportune times. What can we do when these moments arise? There is an easier solution at your disposal than you may think.

This hack has been described as a lifesaver and we do not think that this is hyperbolic. Anyone who has ever had to delay doing their laundry because they do not have any bleach is definitely shaking their head in agreement right now. Valentina Chang, who goes by @valentinachang5 on TikTok, is here to show us her trick and we are already grateful.

“I think I’ve mastered white clothing,” her caption reads. Judging from the millions and millions of views that she is getting, we are definitely inclined to agree. In order to get started, you will need to make sure that you have baking soda and hydrogen peroxide on hand. From there, fill the sink up with water after adding both of these items. Once you have done that, you can put your white clothes in there and leave them for an hour or longer.

The clothes are then briefly washed in the machine with cold water and a small amount of detergent.

Valentina then places the clothes outside to air dry. Just like that, they come out sparkling white!
